Headline from today's local newpaper:
Woman kept dead husband, sister in home
Ah, the local newspaper, providing blog material since ...... forever.
Here we go:
"The mummified remains of people found in a 91-year-old Wyalusing woman’s home are believed to be her late husband and sister.
According to court documents filed in Pennsylvania, two workers from the Area Agency on Aging contacted state police to report that Jean Stevens’ home contained the body of her husband, Jimmy, and sister, June.
Jean Stevens showed the workers the body of her sister and told them her husband’s body was rolled up in a rug on the premises, according to the document.
The agency workers told state police that “Mrs. Stevens is in control of her mental faculties (other than her acts of keeping the bodies in her home).”
Jean Stevens told the workers that she received help to disinter her husband’s body from an unnamed cemetery years ago. She said she retrieved her sister’s body from its grave shortly after burial in October 2009.
A press conference is slated for 1 p.m. today at the Bradford County Children’s Home in Towanda.
State police in Towanda said the remains of two people were found at a house on Old Stagecoach Road at about 3 p.m. Tuesday following the execution of a search warrant.
District Attorney Dan Barrett said Wednesday his office is not involved in a criminal homicide investigation. He declined to answer other questions."
Best (or worst, depending on your opinion) line? : "She said she retrieved her sister's body from its grave shortly after burial in October 2009."
Holy shit, you guys, I wanna meet this lady.
Or, you know, not.
